The Elder Leadership Team consists of eight (8) Lay Elders
and seven (7) Pastoral Elders
Responsibilities of the elders and Elder Leadership Team:
The elders oversee the worship, fellowship, witness, education, mission and ministry of the church. The elders model and teach biblical godliness, equip the saints for the work of the ministry, shape policy, pray, teach, uphold doctrine, oversee church discipline and shepherd the flock.
The Elder Leadership Team (ELT) leads and shepherds the church body in all decision-making matters. This means that, at times, the ELT will gather the entire congregation for open discussion, proposals, information, prayer, and/or voting (Acts 6 and 15). At other times, decisions will be made solely by the ELT (Acts 6; Acts 15; Hebrews 13:17; I Timothy 5:17; I Thessalonians 5:12).
